XDA Senior member Metastable, creator of Epic Audio Visualizer, has done it again. You may remember a story in August here that followed Metastable as he developed a Deadmau5 inspired music visualizing live wallpaper. An interesting read for developers and Deadmau5 fans alike, the original thread (here) spawned a Daft Punk themed demo (here) and now a Skrillex version joins the mix. Metastable’s live wallpapers are music-reactive renderings of artists stage setups.
Electronica is known for spectacular light shows, and Skrillex’ dubstep performances are no exception. Designed by Sensory Sync, Skrillex’ rig is one of the biggest and most advanced out there. Metastable’s wallpaper is an excellent recreation and it responds to all your favorite music seamlessly. He plans to add more effects and LEDs to his emulated light show later. From the original thread:
Hey, XDA, been awhile and I had gotten some request for this. I finally have it in a condition that I think is worthy of a beta release. The major parts are finished, it’s now just a matter of adding visuals and ironing out any bugs that may come up.
Check it out and enjoy, let me know what you think.
Screenshots don’t compare to seeing this live wallpaper in action. Check out the release thread here to get it for yourself!
Our tireless search for new themes and ways to personalize our devices will never stop. Some looking for abstract images, others wanting animals and so on. The variety is endless and the only thing matters is to have that original theme on your expensive toy.
We noticed the thread made by our XDA friend the0ne, presenting a good collection of themes for your Windows Phone 7. You can find two sets, one including wallpapers with a transparent effect, and the second one without the transparent effect. (Note that transparency does not work on Mango.) And you can find a variety of themes such as Superman, Minimalist Superhero, Pokemon, and many more.
If you liked them, please leave your feed back.

XDAer Metastable‘s Epic Audio Visualizer collection of sound-receptive live wallpapers has been enjoyed by many users since its release back in June. Correspondingly, Metastable has added several new wallpapers since, along with bugfixes and various optimisations across the wallpaper collection.
Recent additions include Falling Object, Laser and Galaxy style visualisations. As with some of the stock Android live wallpapers, these have been designed to respond to changes in audio output from the device – expect to see the pattern change as a song your phone is playing progresses.
Epic Audio Visualizer is available in both free and paid versions, although the free option does not include all of the features from the paid collection. If you’d like to see more, visit the project thread.
Metastable, creator of the Epic Audio Visualizer live wallpaper collection, has recently decided to share some of the knowledge behind the developer’s ingenious creations through a thread in which the steps of creating a new live wallpaper are detailed.
While designing and creating a live wallpaper reproduction of Canadian musician Deadmau5′s current concert set, Metastable thought the XDA community would be interested to know what really goes into masterminding an example of one of the most popular cosmetic features of the Android platform.
By following the thread, users can read the code that is required for various effects and observe the direct outcome of tweaking such information. Also included are screenshots of the work-in-progress and notes on what the developer plans to do next – expect to see updates to the post as Metastable makes more progress.
If you (like myself) are interested in software development but do not know enough to create your own projects, following a build thread such as Metastable’s could be a perfect start.
